We invite all to join us at any giving level. Typically, members give a gift of $250 per year. These gifts are invested into both our non-endowed and endowed funds. Our non-endowed fund receives $25 of each gift to support the ongoing operations of the group while the rest of each gift is invested into our endowment which ensures support for local organizations serving women and children — forever.
Members are also recognized at the following levels:
Founding Member: initially contributed $1,000 to create our endowment and continues to give annually
Sustaining Member: has gifted at least of $1,000 over time and continues to give annually
“Together, we care, we share, and we significantly impact the important needs in our Dubuque community.”
We collaborate to understand the needs of women and children in our region and provide grants that empower women in challenging situations to improve their lives and the lives of their children.Give Now
